OSAAT #236 Anything Goes With A Special Lady

Good morning friends & welcome visitors,

I had quite a rushed weekend and sadly did not post my One Stitch At A Time project which is #236 Anything Goes With A Special Lady.  I made a card for a "Special Lady" in my life who is fighting cancer.  When I was growing up, I wanted to be just like my sister.  I just thought she was so cool and popular and everything I wasn't.  Now I have watched her fight cancer with so much grace & dignity.  What a Lady!

I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut out the the letters SISTER.  The digital cause stamp is by Crafty Girl Creations and you can purchase it HERE.  I bought the Courage paper on Esty, and the flower, brad & ribbon are from my stash.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes With A Twist of Ribbon
Craftng From The Heart- Challenge 58 Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Challenge #260 Always Anything Goes
Eureka Stamps  - #139 Feminine Cards

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I appreciate all of your lovely comments!

A Birthday Card For My Brother

Good Morning Friends & Welcome Visitors,

Today, I would like to show you a birthday card I made for my big brother Joe America.  Since he is the oldest brother in the family, we like to tease him and call him "Captain America".  He has always been my hero.  I have heard it said that you "marry your dad" but I have come to see that I married a man who is the combination of my two older brothers and that is a very good thing.

Last weekend, Jaded Blossom and SVG Cutting Files had a blog hop called "Calling All Super Heroes" it was so much fun and they gave away a ton of SVG Super Hero files.  Captain America was one of them.  Tomorrow they are having a blog hop called "May the 4th Be With You" that will feature Star Wars Cutting Files.  If you would like to get in on that, send me a message on my facebook page Chriss' Facebook Page and I will send you an invitation.

I cut this card out on my Cameo Silhouette.  I used red Bazzill paper.  The inside paper is actually 4th of July paper.  Captain America is made from scraps of paper in my stash.  The sentiment "Hello Super Hero" is from Jaded Blossom and you can purchase it HERE.  I love this stamp set and use it all the time.  The twine is Stars & Strips from Trendy Twine and the star bling is from my stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Little Scrap Pieces - Linky Party - Show it off Saturday
DL Art - April - Anything Goes
Crafting By Designs- Month Long - Anything Goes In May
The House That Stamps Built - WIW April Anything Goes Challenge
Jaded Blossom - April Monthly Challenge - Use Your Favorite Jaded Blossom Stamp

Happy birthday Brother!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  I can not believe I actually mailed your card and you should get it on your birthday!  

Thank you for stopping by everyone.  I appreciate all of your comments!

3GirlJam Design Team Post

Good Morning Friends & Welcome Visitors!

Today is my day to host over on the 3GirlJam Blogspot.

I have a project that I worked on for some time.  My husband & I have prescription bottles that we take medicine from every day.  I did not want the bottles sitting out in view when company came so I made this box.

On the front of the box, I used the gold jute from the 3GirlJam Jute/Ribbon/String Pack.  The paper is from Graphic45 By the Sea and the knob & feet are from Tim Holz.

I made the flowers from the Red, White & Blue Crinkle Ribbon Bundle which I think looks quite nautical.  The buttons have string from the Jute/String Pack.  In honor of Earth Day, I used packaging from a bag of oranges to make a "fence" across the front.  The lighthouse and sentiment nautical as well as the anchor on front are from Authentique Anchored.  I used Mudd Puddles Sand and all of the bling is from my stash.

Here is a close up of the flowers I made.  I started with a circle punch and just twisted the crinkle ribbon attaching it occasionally with a glue gun, then I added some bling in the center.

I did not paint the edges of the inside of the box because I kinda liked the rough nautical look.  What do you think?  Should I paint it?

So that is my project for today.  I want to remind you that you can get the Spring Flowers Crinkle Ribbon Bundle for only $1.00 when you make a purchase at the 3GirlJam shop this month.
